Curiosity, Creativity, Individuality
Brunswick’s Lower School academic program teaches young boys how to learn. In an atmosphere that stimulates curiosity, encourages creativity, and recognizes individuality, teachers strive to help each boy realize his unique strengths. Children are encouraged to take risks and to become independent learners.
The Lower School curriculum emphasizes development of problem solving, critical thinking, and basic skills in the core subjects of reading and composition, mathematics, social studies, and science.
Physical education, art and music classes, computer and library science, and Spanish instruction enhance the basic academic program. The boys also participate in assembly programs, student council, and community service.
Through their own attitudes and examples, teachers help each boy to understand that learning is a process and that active participation is the key to success.
The program inspires young students to become lifelong learners and arms them with the essential skills and habits of mind necessary to make education both meaningful and fun.
